Only a handful of singers succeed in transcending their genre without losing the essence of who they are.

“Without A Woman” features Beres Hammond, and echoes the themes and intensity of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” Maxi and Beres’ musical partnership began years ago with the crossover hit “How Can We Ease The Pain.” Time has deepened the understanding between them and there’s so much soul in this track it hurts. “This song is an appreciation for all women and a gift from the artists,” says Maxi. “Sometimes we forget to simply say ‘thank you’ – as without you, there is no us.”
